About Us

Hello! We're Gail & Chris Fairhurst and like many before us, we moved to France searching for a different style and pace of life.


We found L'Hirondelle in 2008 and our new adventure began. The property comprises a 19th century farmhouse with two en-suite guest rooms plus a converted barn providing self-contained accommodation with four en-suite double/twin rooms, all set in around six acres of rolling Limousin countryside. For more information see: www.lhirondelle.net

Away from the stress and time restraints of mainstream careers, Gail rediscovered her love of cooking and Chris once more had the time to devote to his music. After a good dinner, many of our B&B guests have enjoyed Chris's playing at the end of the evening. The idea to offer both accommodation and guitar tuition came from one of our guests and so our Beginners & Improvers Guitar holidays were born!


Guitar Holidays with Chris Fairhurst


Chris has been playing guitar since he was a child. His father had been a semi-pro jazz musician, playing piano, guitar and drums but, for Chris, it was always the guitar! He still has his father's jazz guitar which dates back to the early 1940's but, these days, now has several others too...... As for his musical tastes, Chris particularly loves early blues, jazz and seventies rock.
